The normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, officially the Abraham Peace Agreement: Peace Treaty, Diplomatic Relations and Complete Normalization between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel, was initially agreed in a joint declaration of the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates (United Arab Emirates) on August 13, 2020, officially called the Abraham Agreement.  The United Arab Emirates was the third Arab country after Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994 to agree to formally normalize relations with Israel, as well as the first Country in the Persian Gulf to do so.

The United Arab Emirates Parliament and Cabinet ratified the agreement on 19 October. “This peace will eventually spread to other Arab states and will eventually end the Arab-Israeli conflict once and for all,” he said, avoiding direct reference to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
